Mountain Weavers Guild spun out of rich history

Throughout the summer of 1977, Davis & Elkins College sanctioned a harvesting of mulberry leaves from the trees on their campus, to provide food for the voracious silkworms being raised by Mountain Weavers Guild member, Ellie Lesser. Her project resulted in fat silkworm cocoons, some of which have been kept intact. These remaining cocoons will be a part of this year's Mountain Weavers Guild exhibit during the Mountain State Forest Festival.
